Be Sensitive

God’s discipline is painful until you get the point of what’s happening in your life.
Be sensitive.
Grasp the right message.
Get rid of pride and be humble. – jjo

Find strength in every weakness

Find strength in every weakness

By: Julpha Jean Olinao

‘’ He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds’’ – Psalm 147: 3

Being broken doesn’t mean you failed. It just means that God allows you to be broken because He lifted you from the pit of a wrong relationship. 

A relationship that does not align with God’s purpose and God’s design was not followed.   

I was broken and it’s not easy because it happened during this pandemic. 

Everything was limited and restricted. And I am far from my family then am also a front liner.  

And my question is, am I going to entertain my brokenness? 

But I forgot about it because during my healing process God led me to His presence. 

During this time I am very weak and stressed but I just rested in His presence and trust Him for making me whole again. 

‘’Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong’’ 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV)  

Furthermore, God is a promise keeper as it is written in Matthew 5:34 (NKJV) ‘’ But I say to you, do not swear at all; neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne ’’. Indeed, He made me whole again not by my efforts but by His grace. 

As written, ‘’My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me ’’ 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV) 

Let’s always ready for the LORD

Is there anything that God is calling you to do?

How do you feel about it? 

Worried? Underqualified? Not prepared? 

Well, let me tell you this. In Jeremiah 1: 5-8 (NKJV) ‘’before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. Then I said, Ah, Lord GOD! Behold. I cannot speak, for I am youth. But the LORD said to me; Do not say, I am youth. For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.’’ 

Is it clear isn’t it?

Once we are called by GOD then that’s it. We cannot give any reason to say no because He is GOD of all. He knows our hearts more than we do. If it’s ready or not. 

Let me give you an example. Most of us when we are in the stage of healing from the brokenness we tend to make ourselves to be alone or to be with family only. Like, have no confidence to spend time with other people. 

But, He is God. He called me to be a disciple leader and to be a prayer leader during my healing stage. Instead of staying in my room and crying all night. He provides people. He provides everything, strength, wisdom, understanding, love, hope, faith, peace, etc. 

He even called me to join this FFEM family. 

As written, ‘’And my GOD shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus’’ Philippians 4:9 (NKJV). 

He knows my heart. 

He knows me and you. 

He knows what we needed. 

He knows everything because He is GOD. 

Moreover, you said yes to God then what’s next? Do we need to strive more in the things that God called us? 

And my answer is Yes! But, let’s not forget who will give an increase. 

It says in, 1 Corinthians 3: 6- 8 (NKJV) ‘’ I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.’’ 

No matter how we strive just don’t forget that it is GOD who gave the increase. He knows when and how to let it be the increase of the things we are called by Him. 

Just remember that ‘’ Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.’’ 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV). 

God is equipping us even though sometimes we are not sensitive about it. 

He is GOD. He can do or called whenever or whatever He wants. 

Let’s not limit our GOD just because our senses or comprehension whispers. 

Take Heart

My thoughts are running since this past few weeks like I don’t really understand everything.

Where to start, how to handle this, how to do this etc. These are the thoughts that overtaking my peaceful mind.  

So, I’ve cried to God because I can’t handle it anymore.  Crying out to God is my best way of saying that I cannot do anything without Him.

After praying, asking and reading.

Surprisingly, God led me to this verse in Matthew 13:23 and it says that ‘’ But he who received a seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces some hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. ‘’

And I was like okay! This is my time to dig more and understand His word more.

Therefore, I will not allow the enemy to steal everything what God has started and planted in my heart.

And now, take heart! Let’s understand everything seriously and do it consistently.

Glory to God.

Two choices ” Panic or Pray ”

Learnings from Sunday Service

When we encounter trials and walls of disappointment,

we don’t realize that the best is yet to come.

Moses does what we should all do. He cries out to the Lord instead of protesting he praise.

And that what should hard times lead us to do. – Ptr. Joby Soriano

Two choices ” Panic or Pray ”

Start ANEW Life With The LORD

As this year started, I asked the LORD how He will going to surprise me in 2021.

Because of my experienced last year, it’s unexpected and worth it.

The seven months of my 2020 is more draining, knowing it all, not listening, negativity, and broken and no personal relationship with the LORD.

It’s not easy anyway because it’s almost three years that I haven’t taken it seriously who God is in my life.

But in those three years, God didn’t stop working in my life.

He is in the business of my life inside in those three years.

Even if I am in that wilderness of life, God didn’t allow me to keep going in that darkness.

And in the next five months, God removed my pride in my heart and plucked out my eyes.

Then, I saw that he is working and a way maker of my life.

And I’ve experienced the love that never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:8)

Because of their prayers, I am healed and back to the LORD wholeheartedly.

I am whole again because of GOD.

And now, I am ready to face the unknown of 2021 because I have God.

Who wants me to start ANEW life that is full of faith, hope and love.

Blessed happy new year.
